Many use it for their designated subject like genealogy or technology. Some use it for events like how I used it for Remembering D-Day around the Web. And some use it for events centered around a conference.
And that's how I'll be using it this weekend for Southern California Genealogical Society's 2012 Jamboree. Sure, I'll be blogging all day long because Weebly has an awesome blogging app for the iPhone that will allow me to blog on the fly. And I'll be capturing video whenever I can. [Exhibitors, get ready to give my viewers your 30-second elevator pitch through my iPhone. You know, if you want.]
But? I'll be gathering tidbits from around the web about SCGS12s Jamboree at the end of the day and Storifying them for your viewing pleasure.
